We empathize with your desire for culinary diversity, and that’s why we bring to you ExpatAsia – this isn’t your average Asian-style restaurant in Calgary.

Thank you Joel for the great entertainment and food you brought to our anniversary party. My friends really liked getting involved and helping you in the kitchen. Sorry I spilt the sauce on the floor but that you came up with another one so fast. Crazy…. We will call on you again.
We had the best dinner party ever. As a Dutch person I have fond memories of Indonesian style Rijsttafel dinners growing up and your menu did not disappoint. The spices, flavors and presentation was magnificent. It was truly an authentic Asian cuisine experience.
What a great evening of food and fun. The Father and Son duo were a huge hit at our team building. You guys have so many great stories and you were so flexible with all our requests, we can’t thank you enough. One of the best catering in Calgary.
